New!  Creative Coding!

Need a little help teaching kids to code or figuring out how to work it into your already packed school day? BrainPOP to the rescue!

BrainPOP’s Creative Coding projects empower students and teachers to make creative projects using code. Just choose a topic and then select one of our four creative projects—stop motion animation, meme, doodle augmented reality, and newscast—then use BrainPOP images, videos and graphics to show what you know!

Projects are scaffolded so that even students with no coding experience can succeed, while those with a background can take their work to more sophisticated levels. All coding projects can be completed in as little as one class period, or extended for those who want to dive deeper.

(NOTE:  The “Creative Coding” platform is available exclusively to students who have HCOS teachers with a My BrainPOP teacher account.)

BrainPOP Creative Coding

To get started, log in with your individual credentials to your teacher’s My BrainPOP roster and navigate to the Creative Coding landing page. We’ll continue to add projects to more and more topics in the coming weeks, so visit often. Turn to our collection of support materials – ranging from video tutorials and lesson plans to differentiation tips and assessment rubrics – to familiarize yourself with the feature and pick up tips for working it into class.

BrainPOP is our school’s favourite website, with BrainPOP, BrainPOP Jr, BrainPOP Français  and BrainPOP Español available to HCOS students. This animated, award-winning online resource provides hundreds of animated, curriculum-based movies covering topics in Science, Social Studies, Math, English, Arts and Music, Health, and Technology with the core content targeted for grades K-8. However, some content is helpful to high school students. Following each movie clip, students have the opportunity to participate in quizzes, cartoons, and do-it-yourself experiments, and with the click of a button, the quiz result can be forwarded to you support teacher.
